The Apu Trilogy consists of the movies Pather Panchali, Aparjito and Apur Sansar, from director Satyajit Ray.
Two decades after its original negatives were burned in a fire, Satyajit Ray’s breathtaking milestone of world cinema rises from the ashes in a meticulously reconstructed new 4K restoration.
The Apu Trilogy brought India into the golden age of international art-house film, following one indelible character, a free-spirited child in rural Bengal who matures into an adolescent urban student and finally a sensitive man of the world.
These delicate masterworks — Pather Panchali (Song of the Little Road), Aparajito (The Unvanquished), and Apur Sansar (The World of Apu) — based on two books by Bibhutibhusan Banerjee — were shot over the course of five years, and each stands on its own as a tender, visually radiant journey.
They are among the most achingly beautiful, richly humane movies ever made — essential works for any film lover.
